Etsy is the perfect place for quirky, homemade, sustainable handmade gifts, but it can also be pretty overwhelming to find the perfect present for that special someone, so here are Handmade Gift Ideas from Etsy.
I’ve done all the hard work for you by narrowing down some of the best one-of-a-kind gift ideas and best of all, no need to break the bank.
Handmade gifts come in two varieties, the ones you make or DIY and the ones you buy from a small maker. It’s one of the reasons I love Etsy so much. I also love them because they are the first major online shopping destination to offset 100% of carbon emissions from delivery. Now, every time you purchase an item on Etsy, we balance out the carbon emissions by creating a positive environmental impact.
HO HO HO! Let’s get to it.
1. For The Winter Lover: A Chunky Knit Blanket
Okay, this blanket is so divine. Who else loves this as much as I do? I spotted this on Apartment Therapy and thought what a perfect gift idea. Made with hand-spun natural wool and is great in the wintertime and also in the shoulder seasons. It’s a classic look with natural fibres that will be a family heirloom that everyone will fight over.
It comes in 5 different natural colours. There are no added dyes, beautiful neutral shades that will add texture and warmth to all decor styles. All products are created, one piece at a time and they are super soft.
Spinning strengthens the yarn so it doesn’t shed and is washable in the machine.
2. For The Hostess with the Mostess: Make it Personal
If you know someone who is a big fan of hosting cheese and wine parties at home, then you buy a custom cheese board. This personalized bamboo cheese board is a great addition to any kitchen and I love the fact that you can add any text you want.
3. For The Manscaper: Expandable Waxed Canvas Dopp Kit
Perfect for the man on the go or the workout buff. Hand-built in the USA, this durable, luxury, waxed canvas Dopp kit is made to last for generations and go with you wherever you travel. You’ll feel the quality of our American craftsmanship when you order your new toiletry bag.
4. For the Book Lover: Solid Oak Personalised Bookend
A beautifully handmade solid oak bookend (or pair of personalized bookends) that will add elegance and a little floral colour to any room whilst holding your books upright!
For you, as a much-appreciated gift for a book-lover or as the perfect Graduation gift to celebrate and remember a loved one’s achievement this is a very unique gift for the bookworm in the family.
5. For the Cat Lover: The Cat Cave, does it get any better?
This cute little cat cave is perfect for your little feline friend. It’s handmade from felt and comes in sizes from small to extra large. It’s a light grey, the perfect accessory for any cat home.
6. For The Dog Lover: Mudcloth Dog Bed
This is basically pet decor! I love mud cloth. These one-of-a-kind pet beds are handmade from a variety of vintage and imported fabrics.
The removable and washable covers feature a heavy-duty brass YKK zipper closure with a lip to tuck the zipper head out of sight. They are fully lined and have overlocked seams for durability. The inserts have channels sewed in, which helps maintain an even distribution of the super soft down alternative inside. Unlike other pet beds, these won’t get flat or lumpy over time. And best of all, they’re uber comfortable for your pet!
7. For the Coffee Lover: Couple Portrait Mug
These are so adorable, colourful and packed full of personality. Each custom portrait will be hand-drawn individually from pictures, no pre-made template will be used… making it a true one-of-a-kind gift. Each portrait can take several hours from start to finish. Once the final design has been approved, the illustration will then be printed professionally on the surface of the camp mug, making it a very unique and practical gift.
8. For the Quirky Decor Lover: Sloth Decorative Throw Pillow
I am in love with sloths, they are simply the cutest and this sloth throw pillow is perfect for that quirky gal in your life.
We all need a slow companion to de-stress us a bit. He’s a darling that one, even more ever since his big role in Zootopia ! Did you know that he only goes down once a week from his tree to go and do his needs ?!?! ????
Its fabric is terry knitted with organic cotton yarn and recycled polyester; the yarn comes from the Mile-end in Montreal. This guy is going to require a lot of attention, thanks to his nails.
9. For The Netflix and Chill BFF: Bathtub Caddy
This beautiful wooden bathtub caddy will add style and practicality to your bathroom decor. Great for setting drinks, food, books, etc. Handmade on the East Coast of Canada, these bath trays are made from solid pine and include two handles for added flair.
You have to measure your bathtub, make sure to follow the directions on the page. These items want to make me get up from writing this blog and go run a bath!
10. For The New Mamma: Crocheted Elephant Rattle
The little crocheted elephant is handmade, filled with a rattle and cotton wool. The eyes of the elephant are made of wool to protect your child from small parts that could be swallowed. The baby rattle is made of quality organic cotton yarn. What a lovely non-toxic gift to give a new mamma!
